Summer Pudding or Summer Fruit Pudding is a British dessert made of sliced white bread, layered in a deep bowl with fruit and fruit juice. The dessert was most popular from the late 19th to the early 20th Century. However, there is no clear record of its origin. Making Summer Pudding is much easier if the bread is stale. This helps the fruit juices soak through the bread, which makes the pudding more pleasant. Typical fruits used in Summer pudding include Raspberries, Strawberries, Currants, Blackberries, Tayberries, Loganberries, Cherries and Blueberries.
